March - Froncie Quinn
In 1982, my husband and I lived in a small apartment outside of New York City. Having recently moved there from my home-state of Ohio, I found myself far removed from the quilt shops that abounded in Ohio. My local store was Judie and Bob Rothermel's, The Schoolhouse Quilt Shop, and I missed them and the store terribly.
My husband, who has always been my guiding light and most avid supporter, suggested that I use my teaching skills to form my own classes for the various Continuing Education classes in the area. This would provide me the opportunity to keep up my own handpiecing skills and have a network of friends in my new community. Because my space was so limited, I began piecing samples for my classes in miniature.
